in our state delegations and across the country. i'm very proud that in california our delegation of democrats is a majority of women, not even counting our two senators, senator feinstein and senator boxer so women are empowered in california. i'm also want to acknowledge that although our numbers are great here, two of our colleagues have gone on to the senate, senator-elect tammy baldwin and we're very proud of that. [ applause ] senator-elect macy hirano, only the second woman of color to serve in the senate. that's pretty exciting and unfortunately we won't have kathy hochul and betty sutton in this next congress, but the future is soon and coming upon us and we know they will be making a great public contribution. so here we are in the past week since the election, we're still finishing up some of our campaigns, we're very proud of the success as i said yesterday and as you see here today. why is it important for us to make this statement of the strength of women in the congress of the united states? of the house democratic women? because this is where the hopes and dreams o
getting things done and providing a model of how they can transition. >> on the map right now california is reading blue in terms of the gubernatorial leading, but california, for instance, has had a whole series of republican governors. we have pennsylvania. we have new jersey, as you just mentioned. are all of these republican governors successful for very different reasons? >>. >> there's a whole swath of policy interests. and another thing that you can look at with the republican gubernatorial is diversity. you have hispanic governors in nevada. they won election of 2010. susanna martinez who got rave reviews for the convention speech at the the republican national convention. you see the republican wing in congress being very, very white. a lot of males dominating the caucus. on the governor's side you have a lot of hispanic and indiana-american governor es showing the way. >> you make the point that four of the five women serving as governors in 2013 are republicans. you look at large majorities of african-americans. latino and asian americans voting democratic, the question may be
in congressman adam schiff a democrat from california who is on the select committee on intelligence. representative, peter king basically saying yet more questions are arising from petraeus's testimony. what can you tell us about david petraeus's testimony this morning? >> i think he gave us a very candid assessment of his initial thoughts based on the best intelligence when he originally briefed us and how the assessments changed over time. and i think he and others have completely debunked the idea that there was some politicization of the intelligence. there's never been any substance to that charge. i can only surmise that, you know, this was a campaign era attack and some of my colleagues just can't let it go. all the evidence to the contrary they just can't seem to let it go. you know, people respected what he had to say today. many of us value the contributions he has made to the country and are sorry to see him go but, again, there is simply no there there. yes, they made errors in their initial assessment. that is going to happen. we have binders full of the raw intelligenc
wants her to be. >> and california congress welcome karen bass also ratzed concerns about the opposition to susan rice. >> this really compromises us and makes us look ridiculous i believe internationally because as far as i'm concerned, again, this is my colleagues on the other side of the aisle that are still recovering from november 6th. the election is over. >> chip, is it fair? what's going on here with this opposition? >> well, unfortunately, i think this has a little bit to do with politics on both sides, and it's always kind of funny to watch both parties after an election when they go after the other one's nominees and go this is all politics, this is terrible, and yet when they're on the opposite side they do the same thing. senator mccain and senator graham certainly have points they'll discus during the nomination process. susan rice is not the nominee to be the next united states secretary of state. and when that process happens, i think the senate will do its job through the constitution and vet that candidate, and that's what they do. >> but this is all about the sunday ta
